So who's idea was this more music thing anyway?
Yesterday I heard a song I haven't heard in ages---"Billy Don't Be A Hero," Bo Donaldson's version.
"Billy, don't be a hero. Don't be a fool with your life. Billy, don't be a hero. Come back and make me your wife. And as he started to go, she said, Billy, keep your head low. Billy, don't be a hero. Come back to me."
The song goes on to describe how Billy volunteered for something courageous during battle and ends up getting killed. His fiance' receives a letter saying he died a hero and she should be proud he died that way. But she threw the letter away.
What a dang tearjerker! Although this song is apparently about the Vietnam War (it was released in 1974), I sat in my car crying and thinking about all of the Iraq war widows. About how their heroes have never come home.
I don't think I can take this music business anymore. I thought listening to the news was depressing. I must be listening to all the wrong stuff!
I need me some Motown. Some Dancing Queen. Some Saturday Night Fever.
My hubby is right. We need an iPod. Time to come out of the dark ages and listen to what we want, when we want!
